During my freshman year at MCV, 
we used to walk along Broad Street to 
see the good looking girls passing by 
and the department store windows ex- 
hibiting glamorous suits and men's ap- 
parel. I wanted to open a charge ac- 
count in one of those clothing stores. 
One of my classmates had recom- 
mended Kaufman s clothing store. So, 
on a beautiful autumn morning, I went 
over to Kaufman s store accompanied 
by my friend and classmate, Jose Gar- 
rid o. 

A big, hearded Mr. Kaufman re- 
ceived us saying "Good morning, gen- 
tlemen ". 

"Good morning. Sir!" we replied. 

"What can I do for you boys? " said 
Mr. Kaufman. 

So far I was optimistic from Mr. 
Kaufman's nice welcome. "I would like 
to open a charge account here in your 
store. " I said. 

By now he had noticed my broken 
accent which seemed reminiscent of 
some unpleasant experience with some 
Spanish speaking fellow. "And who are 
you? " staring at me with a deep in- 
quiring look. 

I replied boastfully: "I am a medical 
student '. 

Mr. Kaufman then said: "So a me- 
dee-cal student ", scoffing at my accent. 
"Well, Sir ', Mr. Kaufman concluded, 
"I am a CASH man!!!" 



We wrote to our fifty-year graduates and requested that they 
send us a picture and a little incident that they remembered from 
their college days or some interesting experience that occurred 
during the years. The pleasant results appear on these pages. 



THE SCARAB 




William Linwood Ball 

William Linwood Ball 

Here are just a few paragraphs on the 
happenings of the Class of Medicine in 
1927. It was one of the cockiest classes 
e\er at MCV. We were good, and we 
knew it, especialK' after we came in as 
freshmen and defeated the seniors for 
the basketball championship. Also, af- 
ter we were sophomores, we defeated 
the freshmen in basketball w ith Dr. Ho- 
race Hicks pla\ing for the freshmen af- 
ter leading the state in scoring at Wil- 
liam and Mar\'. The next year the 
sophomores with Doctor Hicks blew us 
off the court. The second, third, and 
fourth \ears the Class of 1927 won the 
ping-pong championship. 

You will recall that Doctor (Lizzie) 
McCracken always gave makeup ex- 
periments at the end of the course for 
which he gave extra credits. However, 
we all knew the grades were alread\' in 
so it didn t make any difference, but Dr. 
Warren (Red) (Soprolignia) Hundley 
saw a chance to pick a "juicy dill. ' You 
all remember how each shelf in chem- 
istr) was given a number. Red wanted 
Doctor McCracken to know that he was 
doing this extra laborator\' experiment 
so he went to Doctor McCracken and 
asked, "Doctor McCracken, where is 
shelf No. 43?" 

"My dear Mr. Hundley, you have 
been in this laboratory for a year now 
and don't know where shelf 43 is yet. 
Come with me and I will show you. ' 
He took Red by the arm to shelf No. 1 
and showed him every shelf from No. 1 
to 43. Red s face turned redder and red- 
der while the rest of the class was laugh- 
ing it up. 

One Saturda\- morning the surgery 

May, 1977 



clinic met in the amphitheater of the 
Egyptian Building. Dr. Frank Johns, a 
most lo\able character, who could scare 
you to death while quizzing \ou, had 
just completed an appendectomv' and 
was quizzing the class on complications. 
He had gotten answers for most of the 
complications. When he got to O. C. 
(Trashy) Jones, he asked him for a com- 
plication. 

Trashy started "Aw-Awa" just like 
the famous Andy with "Amos and 
Andy." Trashy reached to the sky, hop- 
ing, and said, "Error in technique." 

Doctor Johns was so stunned, he was 
speechless for a moment and then asked 
"What did I do wrong, Mr. Jones? ' 

Trashy again said "Aw-Awa," stall- 
ing to think of an answer. "You took 
that pail of saline and we have been 
shifting our feet and dirt must have got- 
ten into the saline, and \()u poured it 
into the abdomen causing con- 
tamination. 

The answer, "Oh, Mr. Jones, I see 
>ou don't like my technique. ' After 
that in Saturday surger>' clinics. Doctor 
Johns would put down his instruments, 
and with that sly grin he had, he would 
look up and ask, "Mr. Jones, how is m\- 
technique? Am I doing all right? " 

In Ma\', 1927, I was about fourth 
from the last to take my final pharma- 
colog\ examination with Dr. Charlie 
Haskell, a true Virginia gentleman and 
expert teacher. This was one day you 
did not need a pot-bellied stove to heat 
the office — you generated plenty of 
your own steam during this exam- 
ination. When I went into his office, I 
was greeted, "Damn, send me another 
one in here like that and I will go 
craz\'. " I found out he was talking 
about Wilbur Stakes. He said when he 
would ask Stakes a question, Stakes 
would jump up, walk across the room, 
kick the coal scuttle over scattering coal 
on the floor, pick it up, come over, sit 
down, and answer the question. He did 
this three times. After the third time. 
Dr. Charlie told him, "That is enough, 
you may go." 

He invited me to sit down. I was 
cjuite jitter\- after hearing of that epi- 
sode, and he knew it. I was manager 
of the baseball team that year and Doc- 
tor Charlie, having been a great athlete 
at the University of Virginia, was inter- 
ested in sports. He started asking me 
questions about the baseball team, 
players, games won, games lost, best 
pitcher, best hitter, until I could not 
take an\' more questions. I told him, 
'Doctor Haskell, I don t know a damn 



thing about baseball today, all I know is 
pharmacology." I named 250 drugs in 
about fi\e minutes with their actions. In 
the middle of a sentence when he saw 
that you knew it, he would stop you. 
Then he started on digitalis. When he 
saw I knew what I was talking about, he 
stopped me. He shut his book and said, 
"I believe you do know a little bit of 
pharmacology today. " I walked out of 
his office soaking, dripping wet.

Fellow Alumni of MCV, especiallv 
the Class of 1927: 

Many things, good and bad, ha\e 
happened to us since June, 1927. After a 
rotating internship at old Memorial and 
St. Philip's Hospitals, I joined a part- 
nership in Newport News and did gen- 
eral practice for 1 Vi years. I then took a 
residenc>' in the New York E\e and Ear 
Infirmar>. Two and a half \ears later. I 
started practicing m\ specialt\ here in 
Newport News and continued until my 
retirement about two years ago. 

Many of our classmates are gone but 
several of them looked pretty good at 
our last meeting five years ago. 

Many interesting episodes happened 
while in school but the\' cannot be de- 
tailed here. I laugh now at 'Limp\' Ball 
(my O.B. partner) w hen on our first de- 
liver}- we could not decide w hether the 
presenting mass was the bladder or am- 
niotic sac. Also, in pharmacolog\', we 
can all recall the slow "Mister Rifkin 
when Doctor Haskell would find a tough 
ijuestion for him which was two or three 
times a session. 

It has been a great life, so far, and I 
appreciate \er> much the lo\alt\ of m\- 
schoolmates, friends, and patients. 




Paul Ellis Prillaman

The incident that is most vivid in my 
mind took place in Doctor Haskell's 
laboratory. Each group of four was 
given a dog to do experiments on. 
These dogs were put to sleep, the ex- 
periments done, and then their life ter- 
minated by giving more ether. Some of 
the dogs died before the experiments 
were completed. Doctor Haskell 
thought that this was happening too of- 
ten and told us so in no uncertain terms. 
He said this had to stop. Rufus Alley 
and I were doing some experiments for 
Doctor Haskell in his lab in which we 
transfused the dogs. That same after- 
noon I was giving a dog ether while 
Alley was drawing blood. I went across 
the room to get a container for the 
blood and when I returned the dog had 
stopped breathing. I went to work very 
vigorously to revive the dog. After sev- 
eral minutes of this, I looked up and 
there stood Doctor Haskell. He looked 
at me, smiled, and said, "Prillaman, 
you can stop, the dog has been dead for 
ten minutes." 



Martin Harold Greenfield 

In September, 1923, I arrived in 
Richmond, a proud and frightened stu- 
dent in a strange city. After parking m\' 
baggage at the Y, I went to the lecture 
hall at MCV where all the freshmen 
were assembled and were told about the 
first course, called osteology. To aid us 
in study we were each given a box of 
human bones. 

I brought my box of bones back to 
my room and began to study. Being 



tired and sleeply I put the box under 
the bed and retired for the night. Dur- 
ing the middle of the night, I was awak- 
ened by the sound of bones rattling un- 
der my bed. Then there was silence. I 
jumped off the bed and kicked the box 
once or twice and went back to sleep. 
Sometime later I was awakened again 
by the noise — this time with the 
thought that the bones must have 
joined each other and formed a com- 
plete skeleton. So I jumped off the bed, 
put on all the lights, pulled out the box 
from under the bed, and threw back the 
lid. Out jumped a little mouse which 
ran to a corner of the room, never to be 
seen again. 




James Thomas Tucker 

James Thomas Tucker 

It was April 25th, 1925, when the 
pharmaceutical class under Dr. Charles 
Haskel met on the old Egyptian build- 
ing on the second floor which was then 
the pharmaceutical laboratory. Bond 
and Haag had prepared for our class an 
experiment. In the laboratory there was 
securely fixed an animal for that pur- 
pose. Dr. Charles Haskell, with much 
dignity and professional bearing, 
dressed in his long white coat, asked a 
few of my colleagues the dosage of vari- 
ous drugs. Then to me, "Mr. Tucker, 
what is the dosage of nicotine?" 

I replied with little thought, "One 
teaspoonful." At that he said to the 
class and also to me, "A teaspoonful is 
not usually the measurement," he put 
one drop of nicotine on this animal's 
tongue, within thirty seconds the ani- 
mal went into convulsions and within 
less than a minute it was dead. I was 
known thereafter as "Teaspoonful 
Tucker!" 




John Wesley Parker, Jr.

It is nice to be remembered on the 
50th anniversary of my graduation. I 
am still practicing medicine every day. 

One person who stands out in my 
memory is Dr. Paul G. LaRoque, asso- 
ciate professor of surgery. He was lec- 
turing one day and mentioned that the 
EENT doctors always ordered an S.S. 
enema on the patients that they were 
doing T & A the next day, so Doctor 
LaRoque said if an S.S. enema is good 
for sore throat he thought that a good 
throat gargle would be good for hem- 
orrhoids. 

Another incident I recall was when I 
cut Dr. C. C. Haskell's laboratory class 
and went to Keith's vaudeville. The 
next day I was sitting across the desk 
from Irvin Rifkin and Rifkin had just 
asked me the preparation and dosage of 
belladonna and I gave him the dosage 
of all of them. About ten minutes later 
Doctor Haskell came in the room for 
class. He called the roll and said, 
"Parker, give me the preparation and 
dosage for belladonna ", I couldn't say a 
word for I knew he had me. He closed 
his roll book and started lecturing. He 
never called on another one during that 
class. After his lecture he came around 
and patted me on the back and said, " I 
didn't give you zero today but don't cut 
my class anymore and go to Keith's 
vaudeville.' 

I raised my right hand and said to 
Doctor Haskell "On my honor, I will 
never cut your class again". 

While in school I was president of my 
freshman class and published the an- 
nual. The X-Ray, my senior year. 

I hope this will be a memorable 50th 
reunion.

One of my memories of my days at 
MCV is of playing the piano at the Sat- 
urday might fraternity dances. I played 
continuously from eight to one o'clock 
for five dollars, which helped to pay for 
my favorite lunch at the lunchroom 
across the street from the College. The 
lunch consisted of an egg sandwich, a 
piece of cake, and a glass of milk, all for 
25 cents. 

I enjoyed my days at MCV. All my 
classmates were very congenial. My 
roommate was Jim Keever, who was a 
wonderful man. 



William Henry Powell, Jr. 

During our senior year, my room- 
mate, the late Dr. Jack Ellison, and I 
decided to try for a Navy internship and 
see the world. We were told we were a 
month late. We tried the Army and got 
the same answer, so he took an intern- 
ship in Virginia and I took one in 
North Carolina. After internship, I went 
into general practice for a year. I had 
never been more than 200 miles from 
home and couldn't see settling down in 
one place the rest of my life so I took 
the next competitive examination for a 
direct commission in the Army and was 
accepted. I loved the service and travel, 
got foreign service early, and served at 
bases and three general hospitals. Then 
I went with the Air Force. I never ex- 
pected to get higher than a colonel and 
thought that would be good, but with 
hard work and lots of support from my 
good wife, Harriet, and being at the 
right place at the right time I made it to 
the top in rank. 

May, 1977 



I retired in 1960 while Chief Medical 
Officer, Supreme Headquarters Allied 
Powers, Europe. 

Leo Lemmer Jacobs 

I have so many pleasant memories of 
my four years at the Medical College of 
Virginia that it is hard to pick out- 
standing ones. 




William Henry Powell, Jr. 

From m>' preclinical \ears, the per- 
son recalled would certainly have to be 
Charles Haskell, professor of physiology 
and pharmacology. One can never for- 
get his dedication and devotion to his 
students. In the clinical years, I remem- 
ber best Dr. G. Paul LaRoque who la- 
bored hard and long to teach us the art 
of diagnosis. 

In my senior year outpatient obstet- 
rics was a definite boost to my ego. It 
was the first time I was publicly ad-

dressed as Doctor. What fun we had in 
helping the mothers to pick outlandist 
names for their newborn. 

I will never forget the Medical College 
of Virginia. 

Rufus Carter Alley 

Great teachers at MCV, including 
Pharmacy Dean W. F. Rudd (chem- 
istry). Dr. Charles Haskell (physiology). 
Dr. Paul LaRoque (surgery), and oth- 
ers, stimulated and profoundK- in- 
fluenced my lifelong thirst for knowl- 
edge and achievement. 

My surgical career was limited to 
proctology. This is not, as some may 
think, a dismal specialty. It is, indeed, a 
highly rewarding one that covers seats 
of the high and mighty as well as the 
more prosaic. A Supreme Court Justice 
and Jack Dempsey were among my 
prestigious patients, and the Governor 
of Kentucky commissioned me a "Rear 
Admiral " Jack Dempsey sustained a 
serious injury, from which he never 
fully recovered, when Louis Firpo (in 
1923) belted him through the ropes and 
he landed on a ringside typewriter. 

In the "Big War" I was Command- 
ing Officer of the 65th Field Hospital in 
General Patton's Third U. S. Army. In 
Germany I was, for a short while, with 
classmate Holmes Ginn. He was then a 
regular Army colonel and later a briga- 
dier general. 

The past half century brought spec- 
tacular jumps in the advancement of 
medical sciences. I envy the >ounger 
generation who will be privileged to 
live through the next half century to 
witness and participate in the mirac- 
ulous developments yet to come. 



Athey Ragan Lutz 

Doctor Lutz retired December, 1976, 
from his private practice in orthopedic 
surgery, which included thousands of 
hours of volunteer service to crippled 
children. He was honored by the Board 
of Directors of St. Joseph Hospital for 
his 43 years of service there with a party 




Jose Garrido-Collazo 

Jose Garrido-Collazo 

AS I REMEMBER ... everybody 
was afraid of Dr. Charles Haskell, but 
m\- remembrance of him was the sheer 
terror he in\<)lked in me. He was a great 
teacher, a researcher, and a great sport. 
He enjo\ed ridiculing the students, 
humorousK'. 

I skipped one of his lectures and ac- 
companied a girl to the Lyric Theater, 
which in those days was a vaudeville 
theater. Just when I was coming out 
with m% girl friend. Doctor Haskell 
crossed our path, saw me, and looked 
down. That night I could not sleep. The 
next day, after giving it a lot of thought, 
I went to class and sat in one of the back 
rows. Doctor Haskell entered the room 
and took out his notebook as if he was to 
call roll. He scrutinized the environ- 
ment b\' looking o\er his glasses and he 
saw me. He started to make one of his 
characteristic mannerisms which was to 
put his tongue into his left cheek and 
closing his left e>e and then very slowly 
emphasizing his good Spanish pro- 
nunciation said, "Mister Garrido, what 
is the effect of adrenaline on the cat's 
pregnant uterus?" 

Nobody could answer that question 
since he was doing some research pre- 
ciseK on that subject at the time. In my 
broken Southern English, I answered, 
"I don't know. Sir." 

He immediately adopted a position 
like the Greek discobolus, made two 
concentric circles in the air and then a 
"zero" in his notebook, closing the 
scene by saying sarcasticalh', "So you 
are a lad>''s man. Eh?" This was imme- 
diateK followed by a roar of laughter 
from m\ dear classmates.

at the Parkersburg Country Club. In 
addition to words of praise from many 
fellow physicians, he was commended 
for his service by the chairman of St. 
Joseph Hospital Board and by the presi- 
dent and chief executive officer of the 
Hospital. Doctor Lutz was previously 
given a citation plaque from the State 
of West Virginia for 43 years of work 
with crippled children.

M\' four years were very enjoyable. It

was study, study, study. 

At present I am semiretired and I am 
practicing genetic medicine at one of 
our local hospitals. I am also working 
part time as a medical consultant for the 
Social Security Service. 

Joseph Warren Hundley 

Retirement for four years has af- 
forded many pleasures, not the least of 
which has been those moments when 
one allows oneself to reminisce on a 
career in medicine and especially on its 
beginnings at MCV in '23 to '27. All of 
us recall vividly man\' highly satisfac- 
tory experiences as well as periods of 
considerable anxiety, the latter typified 
by the hours spent on those tall stools in 
Dr. Charlie Haskells laboratory, 
"sweating out " what digit or even a 
"goose-egg" he was inscribing in his 
little black book. 

However, my most indelible impres- 
sions remain the unstinting contribu- 
tions made to our training, before the 
era of full-time professorships, by the 
dedicated, practicing-physicians of the 
faculty who served without remuner- 
ation. How times have changed. There 
comes to mind particularly Drs. Doug- 
las VanderHoof, Beverly Tucker, Mor- 
rison Hutcheson, Garnett Nelson, 
Wyndham Blanton, Sr., Greer Baugh- 
man, Stuart Michaux, Finley Gayle, 
and Thomas Murrell, Sr. There were 
many more who were no less appreci- 
ated. 

My career in medicine, including 
training, the practice of internal medi- 
cine, and teaching, has been spent en- 
tirely in Philadelphia, primarily with 
Presbyterian-University of Pennsylva- 
nia Medical Center. It will be most re- 
warding to return to MCV to com- 
memorate with my classmates our 
graduation fifty years ago.

Charles Logan Newland 

Charles Logan Newland 

In recalling my years at Medical Col- 
lege of Virginia, the outstanding im- 
pressions I have were the devotion and 
tireless efforts made by the College offi- 
cials. Dr. W. T. Sanger, Mr. Eppa 
Hunton, Jr., and Mr. J. R. McCauley 
Also the medical faculty, Drs. Greer 
Bowman, B. H. Gray, Manfred Call, C. 
C. Coleman, W. T. Graham, C. C. Has- 
kell, G. Paul LaRoque, Stuart Michau.x, 
C. R. Robins, and others working to 
make physicians out of such a group of 
students as the Class of '27 was. I shall 
alwa\s be grateful to this group of great 
men. 

My medical career practice has con- 
sisted of general practice, including sur- 
gery and obstetrics; of the estab- 
lishment and direction of public health 
work which developed into a state pub- 
lic health department for the pre- 
vention of DPT, also smallpox and ty- 
phoid; of helping in establishing and 
directing a diagnostic clinic; and also of 
the instrumentation and the estab- 
lishment of the Transylvania Commu- 
nity Hospital. 

Quoting from an article in the local 
paper: "Dr. Charles L. Newland has 
the unique distinction of being the first 
practicing physician to serve on the 
Transylvania County Board of Commis- 
sioners and of having the longest term 
of service with hospitals in this county. " 

Roy Roosevelt Summers 

The most important day of my life 
was the day I received my M.D. degree 
from the Medical College of Virginia in 
May, 1927. 

May, 1977 



I enjoyed the practice of medicine 
and surgery until the date of my retire- 
ment on February 1, 1976. I began 
practicing in 1928 in Charleston, West 
Virginia, and returned to West Virginia 
University in 1932, to serve as assistant 
director of Student Health Service until 
1938 and director of Health Service 
from 1938 to 1943, during which time I 
relished o\erseeing the construction of 
the new Health Service Building. I had 
teaching assignments while at the Uni- 
versity from 1932 to 1935 as instructor 
of physical diagnosis and as assistant 
professor in surgery from February, 
1938, to June, 1943. 

I returned to Charleston in Septem- 
ber, 1943, to practice general surgery. I 
was on the active surgical staff of Ka- 
nawha Valley Hospital and on the sur- 
gical and courtesy staffs of the remain- 
ing hospitals in the city. I attained 
membership in the Southestern Surgi- 
cal Congress in 1950 and American 
Society of Abdominal Surgeons in 1955. 

I am looking forward to our fiftieth 
\ear reunion on June 3, 4, and 5, 1977.

Born in 1905 in a "flat " over my fa- 
ther's drug store, I had m\' first visit to 
the store when I was two-days old. I 
have been associated with the drug 
business ever since then. 1 was named 
for Mr. Owens of Owens and Minor. I 
am a charter member of Phi Delta Chi 
fraternity. 

Most of the students in my class were 
from the country or small towns. They 
were not familiar with pharmacy as 
practiced then, as so many preparations

were compounded in the store. Profes- 
sor Crockett taught pharmacy, and of- 
ten when a student goofed he would say 
to him, "Son, I think we are depriving 
the farm of a good hand." One of my 
most cherished possessions is the book 
Saved by the Bell given to me by Pro- 
fessor Crockett and autographed by 
him. 

1 bought the drug store from m\- fa- 
ther on Januar\' 1, 1939, moved to a 
new location in June, 1949, and sold the 
drug store to M. D. Lafoon in May, 
1972. 1 am still able to do some relief 
work for Mr. Lafoon. Because I oper- 
ated as a one-man store, 1 have been 
unable to participate in alumni activi- 
ties as I would have liked. 

One night around midnight, I got a 
call at home from an excited customer 
saying that his wife was in labor and the 
doctor did not ha\e an\' chloroform in 
his bag. I met him at the drug store, 
gave him the chloroform just in time to 
help his wife through the last stages of 
labor. 

Another night about 1:30 a.m., I re- 
ceived a call at home from a customer 
saying that he had a prescription that 
he had to have filled immediately; he 
positiveK' could not wait until morning. 
When I met him at the store and read 
the prescription, it was for cascara. I 
was very put out, to sa\' the least. When 
I showed my extreme displeasure at 
being called to the store for cascara, 
incidentally it was snowing, the cus- 
tomer informed me that the reason he 
had not gone to a drug store that was 
open all night was that he did not have 
any money and needed to have it 
charged.

small office for the practice of general

Laurabelle Harris Burgess 

For two years after graduating, I 
worked for Doctors C. C. Coleman and 
J. G. Lyerly. They were specialists in 
brain tumors; at MCV. In 1929 I married 
Marshall Burgess who was a farmer in 
Chesapeake, Virginia. During my first 
years of marriage I was staff nurse at 
Norfolk General Hospital. 

After my son, M. L. Burgess, gradu- 
ated from the Naval Academy, and my 
daughter, Edna Kaye Burgess, from 
Old Dominion College, I took classes in 
psychology and worked at the schools 
near me in Chesapeake, Virginia. I re-

Incidents, I remember! Billy Chris-

to a nurses' home masquerade party as

in 1971 but I still reside at our county 
home in Chesapeake, Virginia. I am 
well and happy and would be glad to

uates. 

Sidney Fowler Johnston 

Some of the happiest days of my life 
were spent during m>' four years at the 
Medical College of Virginia and my 
senior year as intern at Grace Hospital. 

To cap it all was the graduation of my 
son, Charles E., from MCV in the Class 
of Medicine, 1962. 

Malcolm Samuel Stinnett 

This year marks the 50th year since I 
graduated from MCV and I want my 
alumni friends to know that these years 
have been fruitful for me in every way. 
I married Lois Ikenberry in 1930 and 
have three children, one son and two 
daughters. 




Malcolm Samuel Stinnett 

I have served in many ways in my 
home town, Buchanan, located in Bote- 
tourt County, Virginia. It is situated in 
a beautiful setting between the Alleg- 
hany and Blue Ridge mountains with 
the James River flowing between. Since 
graduating in 1927 I have been in gen- 
eral practice and have enjoyed every 
minute of it. I have always felt that the 
personal touch between doctor and pa- 
tient is most important, since these are 
days of specialization. People want 
some one nearby who will treat the 
whole person. Subsequently, I believe 
the family doctor is fast returning. 

Eliot Wesley Johnson 

During my four years as a student at 
the Medical College of Virginia, the 
saddest and the happiest events oc- 
curred on the same day. At the end of 
the first semester of my second year, the 
names of persons successfully passing

the course in physiology were posted on 
the school bulletin board. My name was 
not on the list. That evening my land- 
lady called me to the phone, the voice 
on the other end of the line said "John- 
son, this is Dr. Charlie Haskell. I want 
to inform you that \our name was mis- 
takenK- left off the list and you passed 
with a good grade.' 

This conversation changed my out- 
look on life from fear of being a failure 
in medicine to a life dream coming true 
of being a physician. I have enjoyed 
fifty years of family practice and have 
had a very rewarding patient-physician 
relationship. 

I married Dorothy Chambers in July, 
1931, we have a daughter and two sons. 
All are happily married and assets to 
their communities. We also have seven 
wonderful grandchildren. 




Charles Roy Hoskins, Jr. 

I remember a day in the anatomy 
laboratory, when my roommate, Jim, 
was struck by a strip of muscle thrown 
from across the room. He looked all 
around, and the culprit, being the stu- 
dent most intensely diligent in his dis- 
section, was spotted rather promptly. 
Jim wound up and sent the muscle fly- 
ing back toward its source. Unfortu- 
nately, the professor was just com- 
pleting a demonstration half way 
between the two and rose to his feet just 
in time to receive the chunk of muscle 
in the middle of his chest, and was fac- 
ing Jim, who was poised like a pitcher 
who has just delivered his best pitch. 
Needless to say, my roommate was tak- 
ing anatomy again the following year, 
but that time it was not marred by 
unauthorized athletics. 

Seth Gayle, Jr. 

1 retired in 1957 after more than 
thirty years in the U. S. Army Medical 
Corps. One of the most exciting experi- 
ences in my medical career was going 
into Berlin on 4, July, 1945, and meet- 
ing the Russians. We, the 113th Evac- 
uation Hospital (combat seasoned), mo- 
tored in to open the first American 
Hospital there after the war. The build- 
ing used was the "Zinowald Schule, 
badly bomb damaged, in the borough 
of Zehlendorf. The entire roof had to be 
replaced and open for surgery within 
twenty-four hours. A suite had to be 
prepared for President Truman and 
other U. S. and Allied personnel attend- 
ing the Potsdam Conference. The Presi- 
dent had no need for the suite but an 
unfortunate staff member with an acci- 
dental GSW occupied it.

DRUG INFORMATION CENTER 



:-<^^^ms^m^^£is:y 



Say goodbye to the old "basement" 
concept of Pharmacy. In more and more 
hospitals it is becoming the Drug Infor- 
mation Center, responsible not only for 
purchasing, dispensing, and distributing 
medication, but also for the incredibly 
complex job of compiling, storing, and 
constantly updating data on drug effic- 
acy, safety, compatibilities, and inter- 
action with other therapeutic agents. 

Today's hospital pharmacist must be 
an information specialist with a thorough 
understanding of the hundreds of highly 
sophisticated drugs of the 70's. 

To fulfill these responsibilities he'll be 



seen up on the floor more often, confer- 
ring with the attending physician ... at 
the nursing station providing dosage in- 
formation . . . with the administrator and 
P. & T. Committee supplying the facts on 
comparative drug costs, suppliers, and 
ordering procedures. A. H. Robins salutes 
the hospital pharmacist — one of the pro- 
fessionals who make up the Hospital of 
Today.

distress — Potassium Iodide, Glyceryl Guaiacolate, Aminophylline, Ephedrine with 

Phenobarbital (to lessen cardiac stimulation) . 




INDICATIONS: For the prompt symptomatic relief 
of bronchial asthma, emphysema and bronchiectasis. 
The Mudranes dilate the bronchi and liquefy mucus 
plugs. DOSAGE: Tablet; One tablet with a full glass 
of water 3 or 4 times daily as required. Divide tablet 
for child's dose. Elixir; Children, 1 cc for each 10 lbs. 
of body weight. May be repeated 3 or 4 times a day. 
Adult, one tablespoonful 4 times daily. All doses should 
be followed with a glass of water. 

CONTRAINDICATIONS: AminophyUine/Theophylline is contraindicated in 
the presence of severe cardiac arrhythmias and patients with massive myocardial 
damage. Ephedrine, in presence of severe heart disease, extreme hypertension, 
and in hyperthyroidism. Phenobarbital, in porphyria and in patients with 
known phenobarbital sensitivity. Potassium Iodide, in pregnancy (to protect the 
fetus against possible iodine-induced depression of thyroid activity), in tubercu- 
losis (produces gumma dissolution), and in acne; also in the presence of known 
iodide sensitivity. PRECAUTIONS: AminophyUine/Theophylline should be 
avoided in patients with massive myocardial damage and/or severe cardiac 



arrhythmias. In children, overdose may cause vomiting, cardiac arrhythmias, 
and severe agitation. Ephedrine should be used with caution in the presence of 
severe cardiac disease, particularly arrhythmias and angina pectoris; avoid in 
hyperthyroidism and severe hypertension. Phenobarbital may be habit-forming. 
Avoid overdosage. Potassium Iodide: Discontinue in the presence of skin rash,

cardiac arrhythmias, and aggravate severe myocardial disease. It may cause 
headaches and tachycardia. Vomiting and dizziness are not uncommon. Ephed- 
rine: In patients hypersensitive to CNS stimulation, ephedrine may cause nerv- 
ousness, tachycardia, extrasystole and ventricular arrhythmias. May cause uri- 
nary retention, especially in the presence of partial prostatic obstruction.

vated. Phenobarbital may produce severe skin rash. Avoid overdosage. May be 
habit-forming. Potassium Iodide may cause nausea. Over very long period of
